Each instrument in the Timeless Collection is rare and unique in that it is built with reclaimed wood that is 140 or more years old. Reclaimed from European Fir beams, trusses and joists from old buildings such as farms, pubs, and bridges in the UK. Only 1% of 1% is suitable to become Timeless tone wood.

Dry, stiff, and light, European Fir is tonally rich, deep and loud, exhibiting the crispness of a Spruce and the warmth of Redwood and Cedar.

Four all-solid instruments are available in the Timeless Collection: A Parlor guitar, a F-Style mandolin, an A-Style mandolin and a Celtic mandolin. Each Timeless Collection instrument includes a hard shell case and a cut steel nail encased in acrylic pulled from the reclaimed beams used to build a Timeless, authenticating its 140+ year old origin.

AN AMERICAN ORIGINAL

1883, Chicago. George Washburn begins a legacy of greatness with the first Washburn stringed instruments, bringing quality instruments priced for home musicians. In 1889, Washburn becomes the largest mandolin maker in America.

AGE OF INNOVATION

In the early 20th century Washburn continues to lead with quality guitars, banjos, and madolins. In 1912, Washburn releases the Lakeside Jumbo, the first dreadnought guitar. In 1930, Washburn merges with Tonk Brothers and releases the Solo Deluxe, the precursor of the auditorium style guitar and one of the best-selling guitars created.

AMPLIFIED AND ACOUSTIC

With the onset of the 1970's, Washburn releases the Wing series, our first electric models. The Wing series continues the Washburn standard by delivering a show quality instrument at a home artist price. In the 80’s and 90’s the Washburn Festival series revitalizes the art of acoustic performance, contributing to the rise of "unplugged" performances.
